Orders received by 12:00 pm (noon) Pacific Standard Time (PST) Monday through Friday are usually shipped the same day. (Excluding Holidays)

As part of our Value Added-Service we at Ameriden try very hard to process and ship your order the same day we receive it. Occasionally, during monthly specials or heavy demand, your order may go out within 24-48 hours. You will be notified by e-mail in advance of any unusual delay. Ameriden cannot be held responsible for the slowness of a chosen service carrier or such things as Acts of God, i.e. inclement weather.

If you choose an expedited shipping method, please keep in mind it will only speed up the in-transit time not the order processing time.

Why do you only use USPS International Express Mail for International shipments?

We only offer USPS International Express Mail because it is secure, quick & cost effective. They have excellent tracking functionality and customer service follow-up.

UPS & similar carriers are excellent, but much more expensive and in some cases you may be charged additional handling fees when your package is delivered.

How is the cost of shipping my international order determined?

The shipping cost is based on weight and the destination of your package. At the time your order is placed the information is sent electronically to USPS for verification and the charge is calculated automatically. In some instances, this charge can be equal to or greater than the total cost of your order.

Why was my package returned to Ameriden?

Sometimes it’s the small things! We don’t like to see packages returned just as you don’t like not receiving them. An “order bounce back" is a very frustrating experience. Sometimes it can happen for a simple reason such as an incomplete shipping address or choosing the wrong carrier to deliver to your designated address.

Whatever the reason, we want to remedy it as fast as possible. We do our best to validate each address electronically through UPS and USPS. Occasionally the system cannot validate the address provided and will require us to contact you directly for more detailed information. Listing exact information in your ship to address will reduce the chance of your order being delayed or returned to Ameriden.

We suggest to help prevent this from happening that you review the check list below to make sure the address you give is complete and appropriate for the shipping carriers we offer.

Check List:

Business Locations:

    • Include the business name in your address.
    • Business buildings may also have a name such as “The Adams Building” or they may be located in a specifically named Business Park complex.
    • Businesses may have a specific floor number and or Suite number that must be included.
    • Make sure you list “in care of” example ( C/O John Doe, accounting dept room 5) in the address so that when a package is delivered it may be routed to you directly.

Residential Locations:

    • Be sure to include your apartment number, building complex number or location clearly in the address.
    • Make sure the correct Rural Route number or PO Box number is clearly stated.
    • If applicable, please provide additional delivery instructions such as “ok to leave with doorman/neighbor” or “leave at specific location on premises”.
    • If sending to a different location such as a vacation, friend or family’s home please make note of that in the additional instructions field.
    • Make sure you are requesting the correct carrier. Remember, United Parcel Service (UPS) WILL NOT deliver to a United States Postal Service (USPS) Post Office Box.
    • There are times when UPS and USPS will not deliver to an unattended location. If no one is home or they are unable to find a secure place to leave the package they typically will leave a delivery notice, instructions and options for redelivery or an alternate location where your package can be picked up, usually at your local USPS office or the local UPS office.
